Blossoms of Red & Green Necklace Get in the Holiday spirit with this necklace using our Millefiori Single Flower Glass Beads. These 12mm beads are cut out in single flower shapes in a rainbow of colors. For this project, Cheryl chose the red flowers and green flowers only out of the 30 beads on a strand.
